The Recipe

The Not-so-secret Recipe

Pickering’s Gin is based on an original Bombay recipe, handwritten on a fragment of paper dated 17 July 1947. Kept as a family secret for over 66 years, it only resurfaced in 2013 when we (Matt and Marcus) began distilling at Summerhall. We have now fine-tuned and tweaked that recipe to produce three delicious styles of gin.

Pickering’s Gin : a spectacularly smooth and flavoursome gin.
Pickering’s Navy Strength Gin :  bottled at 57.1% (100 proof) for more punch.
Pickering’s Original 1947 Gin : crisp and refreshing, with a decidedly spicy kick.
